The Pirates of the Bermuda Triangle is a whimsical layout designed and built by Dr. Brian Darrow with 75,000 LEGOŽ brand pieces from his own personal collection. This award winning project ponders the result of 17th Century Pirates sailing out of the Bermuda Triangle arriving at modern Miami Beach to the dismay of some and delight of others.
This display took roughly two months to complete and was first shown at BrickWorld 2009 where it won Best Individual Layout. It requires about 2 hours to set up for display and one hour to tear down. Nothing is glued! It all comes apart in sections and fits in custom made cardboard boxes for transporting. It is an original creation; not a LEGOŽ kit.
Brian began building with LEGOŽ as a young boy in the 1960s. His interest was rekindled while helping his sons (now ages 30 & 28) build sets while growing up. He first exhibited his creations in 2003 and continues to accept invitations to display his creations as time permits. This past summer he displayed his model of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and a part of his Alpine Train layout at the Indiana State Fair. He is a hobbyist and not supported by the LEGOŽ Company.
Brian is a 1980 Graduate of Logan Chiropractic College. He and his wife, Lisa, live in Lebanon, Indiana where he has a family Chiropractic Practice.
